The Egyptian Foreign Minister, Sameh Shoukry, discussed on the phone with the Libyan counterpart, Mohammed Sayala, supporting peace and stability in Libya.
The spokesman for the Libyan Foreign Ministry of the Government of National Accord, Mohammed Al-Giblawi, said on Twitter that Shoukry expressed gratitude for the welcome given to the Egyptian delegation on their visit to Tripoli, hoping more cooperation will be carried out between Libya and Egypt.
The Egyptian delegation, headed by deputy intelligence chief Ayman Badie, arrived in Tripoli Sunday and met with the Foreign Minister of the Government of National Accord Mohammad Sayala and deputy head of Presidential Council Ahmed Maiteeq as well as Chief of General Staff Mohammad Al-Haddad, in addition to the Interior Minister Fathi Bashagha and acting chief of intelligence Emad Al-Trabelsi at Corinthia Hotel.
Bashagha discussed with the Egyptian delegation common security challenges and ways to enhance security cooperation with Cairo, in addition to ways to support a ceasefire agreement reached in October between the legitimate Libyan GNA and militias loyal to warlord Khalifa Haftar.
The Interior Ministry explained in a statement that the Egyptian delegation and GNA officials went over the results of the 5+5 Libyan Joint Military Commission talks in Geneva and Sirte to support the UN efforts to end the current crisis by political and peaceful means.
